I just hope Hansen isn't this versions Chris Sale in the sense the front office panics over arm problems and pigeon holes him. Just think if Sale did not stand up for himself when they told him he was going to closing full time.
The goal is to make him a starter, they are just building confidence and bringing him along slowly. He'll get stretched out again and be back to starting soon. I imagine that will start to happen very quickly with as much success as he is having.
